Snares

SNAREs

receptors for sNAPs. The neuronal receptor for vesicle SNAPs, v sNARE, is synaptobrevin, also called vAMP 2. The target (t SNARE) associated with the plasma membrane of the axonal terminal is syntaxin. The SNAP SNARE complex is apparently responsible for regulating vesicle targeting: neurotoxins such as tetanus toxin and botulinum toxin selectively cleave sNAREs or SNAPs.

See: cellubrevin.
